New Twins uniforms revealedNew house, new duds:
Plans for the new uniforms and logos unveiled today include:
Some pics available here. Some others here. Personally, I like the elimination of pinstripes on the road, which I think looks impossibly lame. Pinstripes = sharpness. Sharpness demands white. Pinstripes on gray looks terrible.
I also like the near elimination of the "M" cap (it's still available in an alternate cap). The TC is one of the coolest logos around. The more of that the better. And of course, as I've mentioned many times in the past, the M logo gives me flashbacks to 1987 and 1991, and those Twins teams bummed me out pretty terribly.
If they really wanted to be cool they would have eliminated the solid blue home alternate which never, ever, ever, ever, ever looks good. On any team. Anywhere. at any time. Solid jerseys that don't match the pants ought to be banned.

“The TC is one of the coolest…”

You should totally start using the definite article.

Agreed on pretty much all fronts. The TC hat is arguably the best in the game. The M hat is hideous. And uniforms definitely should be banned when the solid jerseys don’t match the pants.

I agree with you on everything but the blue home uni’s, and that’s mostly because in the last two years or so that jersey has somehow had some good luck, especially for Kevin Slowey.
But yeah, if it stops working like that, burn it.

Didn’t they wear the M cap during 1991?

I have great memories of 1987 and 1991, and feel exactly the same about the M cap. Good riddance to that (almost).

I’d like to go back in time, when the racist Calvin Griffith moved the team from Washington DC to the whitest place he could find. Some owners wanted to make Griffith take the expansion team, and keep the swiftly improving Nats in DC. That’s what should have happened. As to the unis, they look ok, but we all know the real reason these things are changed every few years is so that MLB properties can make more $$$.

Shouldn’t they be making long sleeve versions…?
Agree on blue alternate/not matching. Makes them look like a softball team.

Jerseys that don’t match pants should be left in Florida and Arizona on the last day of Spring Training.

Call me crazy, but I actually like the blue uniforms quite a bit. If I were to buy a Twins jersey (unlikely, since I’m Tigers fan), I would probably buy the blue. I’m a big fan of the new road jersey and throwback jersey as well. Overall, some classy duds.

Given the new outdoor park, the Twins may want to bring back the wool flannels for April and October. Maybe even make the jersey a sweater.
I agree, the red pinstripes were lame, but a dark gray pinstripe may have looked quite a bit better.

Come on now, the 70’s Astros jerseys are much more hideous than the blue
